When there is a critical spill, there’s not a moment to spare—you must respond quickly and contact the right agencies and officials as required by law. Compliance officers and legal counsel have relied on the Spill Reporting Procedures Guide since 1984 for information on how to deal quickly and accurately with accidental releases of chemicals and contaminants into the environment—and how to comply fully with federal and state hazardous waste requirements.

The new 2019 Edition includes:
